Don't know about RPG, but when you mentioned buf_length earlier I searched
on it and this was one of the hits:

It's Cozzy's so it ought to be good.

That said, if you're going to move it anyway, why not use the 'move' mode,
instead of 'locate'?
I realize locate performs slightly better, but perhaps that doesn't really
matter in a grand scheme of things.

Subject: Re: [C400-L] Question about _Rreadn C function

Ok another issue.

When I try to copy the data out of the buffer, I get garbage.

I think perhaps my RPG prototype isn't right or I'm not using it right.

here's part of the C structure definition for _RFILE:
volatile void *const *const in_buf;
volatile void *const *const out_buf;

Here's the RPG DS definition I'm using:
D in_buf *
D out_buf *

I was trying to use in_buf like so:
MemMove(fileFile.inbuf : myBuffer : 114)

Which apparently isn't right.

Is there a way to use _RFILE.in_buf in RPG?
